Cosy,comfortable cottage...perfect for a winter stay,

5 of 5
We have just returned from a half term break staying in Eastcliff House. There were 5 of us all together.4 adults and our 14 year old. We found Southwold a wonderful place to stay and the position of the cottage absolutely perfect.. Hubby and I shared the twin room whilst our daughter and son in law had the double. The bunk room was loved by the teenager....not at all uncool! My overriding memory of this holiday will always be waking to the sound of the sea and lying in my incredibly comfortable bed looking out of the window at the sun rising over the water. The house is well equipped with fluffy towels and lovely cotton bedding. The log burner is easy to operate and was very welcome come the evenings! Everything you need is on the doorstep. We will REALLY miss the Two Magpies bakery....sensational bread and cakes! We actually bought several loaves home for the freezer! The five of us visited Gallery Thea at the end of the main shopping street and painted various ceramic items. We spent a very enjoyable 2.5 hours there and were thrilled with the results when we picked our masterpieces up at the end of the week. Local pubs are great...Our daughter and son in law loved the Lord Nelson which is a stone's throw and around the corner from the cottage. We ate in the Sole Bay Inn which was fabulous. The lovely pier is well worth a stroll to. We did get out and about a bit but it would have been easy just to stay in Southwold as there is a lot to do. We feel that we didn't do everything that we could have done and look forward to a return visit. No parking outside the house but it wasn't a problem. We always managed to find a space nearby. Overall....a fabulous little town and a wonderful cottage. We will definitely be back.
